Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

When I push the start button on my dish washer, nothing happens. Part of the problem is, is that I never use it, but I don't want it not to work. It was like new when I moved here two years ago, but I don't have enough dishes to wash in it, so it sits all time.

A dishwasher is like a car and needs to be used once in a while. If you put your car in the garage and don't try to start it for a year, chances are, it will not start. A dishwasher should have at least some water in the pump to prevent the seals from dryng up. If there are any food particles in stagnant water, they will start to grow into a science project given enough time. I have replaced countless dishwashers for people who spend their winters in Florida then come home to a dead or leaking dishwasher.
Hope this helps, Ken

    PS There can be a host of reasons a dishwasher will not start. Can you hear a hum but the motor does not turn? A common problem is the seal has dried up and is sticking to the motor/pump shaft. On the back side of the motor are cooling fins. Try to turn the motor by pushing on the fins. Often this will allow you to jump start the maching but watch for water leaks from now on.

Dishwashers will not switch on. The power is connected, but when pushing the button, nothing happens.


Maybe you did not connect it properly in the first place. Try to ask a Tecnician to check the power Supply board cos next time you might not be able to start it

Did you figure out a solution to this problem? I just bought a brand new Frigidaire and it is doing the exact same thing, except it never worked properly. I thought it was the unit and had HH Greg bring another out but the 2nd one did the same as the first.

Dishwasher won't start


jamcdani Most likely the problem with your dish washer is bad key pad. It is not repairable and has to be replaced. Whirlpool does not sell it separate and you have to by the whole console assembly. The price range is between $95 and $115 (different colors) and it is not very complicated to replace it. I can help you with the complete step by step instructions and, if you provide the complete model number of your dish washer, I get the part number and the best price for you. Gendos post back...
